It takes time to gather all the information you need to make your entries. Work closely with subject teachers and heads of department to make sure you enter the right candidates for the right exams.
When you submit your entries affects when you receive your question papers. Watch our video below to find out more.
VIDEO: Watch our video to understand how the time you submit your entries determines when you will receive your question papers. Video transcript.
Submit your entries before the deadline so you have time to check them and send us any amendments, avoiding any late entry fees.
Submit your entries using:
Entry option codes and instructions for submitting entries are in your Cambridge Guide to Making Entries. This is available from the 'Support Materials' section of CIE Direct. We also send you the guide in hard copy at the end of October for the following June series and at the end of March for the following November series. Entry option codes are specific to each series so make sure you are using the correct guide.
Once you have checked all your entry information, make sure you submit your entries by following the instructions in the Cambridge Guide to Making Entries. If you do not submit your entries, you will not receive materials and question papers for your exams.
If you have candidates who are retaking a component or syllabus, you can find more information in the understanding retake entries section.
Some syllabuses allow candidates to carry forward marks from a previous exam series to a later series. There is more information in the carry forward entry rules section.
We send your final entries confirmation despatch within two weeks of receiving your final entries. See the Cambridge Handbook for more details about your despatch, and what to do with it.

If your centre makes entries for Cambridge Primary Checkpoint and Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint, you can name your teaching groups so they appear on your diagnostic feedback.
A teaching group name can be anything which will help you to identify the class more easily. For example, you could use the name of the teacher who takes the class, or your own internal class name. Teaching group names should be no longer than 40 characters.
